It makes me sad to see how far the insatiable Chinese hunger for ressources goes. I think he's right in saying Afghanistan won't see an ounce of the copper the mining company will extract; they're being deprived of their own richness, mineral as well as cultural, and they'll have to bear with the consequences, live with the scars. Sickening.

i c, they could and should force them to replace it instead of destroying it. but if there isn't a caring party whit authority around. there is not much hope.
